Netanyahu: Iran more interested in nuking US than Israel
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not only predicted Tuesday that Iran would cheat on the White House-backed nuclear deal — but said the mad mullahs are more interested in nuking the United States than Israel.
Netanyahu urged Jewish Americans to lobby lawmakers against the agreement struck by the Obama administration and other world powers with Iran.
“Don’t let the world’s foremost terrorist regime get its hands on the world’s most dangerous weapons,” Netanyahu said in a streamed address organized by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and the Jewish Federations of North America.
Organizers said 10,000 people tuned in to the Webcast.
Netanyahu tailored his address for a US audience, telling Americans that Iran wants nuclear weapons to hit the United States.
“I want to make it clear to you,” he said. “Iran is not building these ICBMs to hit Israel. They already have missiles that can hit Israel everywhere. They are building these ICBMs to hit you. To hit the United States.
“You’re the great Satan, we’re just the small Satan,” he added.
The prime minister mocked the deal’s provision for 24 days’ notice, which could give Tehran enough time to dump evidence of nuclear-arms development.
Netanyahu compared the lengthy warning period to cops giving drug dealers advance word before storming a drug den.
“Believe me, you can flush a lot of nuclear meth down the toilet in 24 days,” Netanyahu said. “It will cheat. They’ve done it before, they’ll do it again.”
Not even America’s best spies or intelligence from key allies could prevent Tehran’s secret nuclear development, the prime minister asserted.
